Protic ILs have the additional advantage that the proton activity can be adjusted by the choice of Bronsted base and Bronsted acid used in their formation (Byrne & Angell 2008).
The band at 1440 [cm.sup.-1] was due to the N[H.sub.4.sup.+] ions formed on Bronsted acid sites.
3, two desorption peaks can be observed in the samples: the first broad low-temperature (LT) desorption peak at 200-300, which is attributed to NH3 adsorbed on weak Lewis acid sites [11]; and there is a distinct high-temperature (HT) peak(at the range of 700-1200 ), which is attributed to the presence of Bronsted acid sites [11, 13].

After screening a variety of Lewis and Bronsted acids, we have developed a silver trifluromethanesulfonate promoted 2,3-rearrangement of O-a Ilyihydroxylamines.
These activators are based on Bronsted acids having a pKa of 2 to 6 or their salts, such as ammonium salts.
Vinyethers can undergo distinct polymerizations, such as cationic, which is unusually electron rich and forms rapidly polymerizing carbocations in the presence of initiators, such as Lewis and Bronsted acids.

The photoinitiators transform into free radicals for the acrylate chemistry or Bronsted acids for the cationic chemistry (Figure 4).
Onium salts are known as a novel class of stable, non-hygroscopic, highly efficient photoinitiators; they are latent sources of cation radicals and Bronsted acids which can be generated on demand by irradiation.
Because the surfaces of these hydrous oxides are covered with hydroxyl groups, which can act as Bronsted acids (proton donors), these surfaces in their deprotonated forms can also interact with metal species in solution [14].
